Another thing the illegal alien amnesty bill doesn’t do is reduce the number of foreign student aliens on student visas. Instead, that’s been expanded. But, as we know, many of the illegal aliens “lost” in the Great American Abyss are student visa violators and overstayers.
Student Visa Violators like Syed Maaz Shah, a Paki engineering student at the University of Texas at Dallas–a supporter of the Taliban terrorists, who was here on an expired student visa. Yesterday, Shah was convicted in Houston of federal firearms charges connected to paramilitary training that prepared Muslim men to fight U.S. troops overseas. He and other Muslim students here on student visas all participated in this plan to train to kill us while they’re here courtesy of our ludicrous, extreme hospitality.
Shah illegally fired an assult rifle during two “camping trips,” last year. These “camping trips”–translation necessary for ignoramuses, like radio talk show host Frank Beckmann and his producers–were really terrorist training camps . . . on U.S. soil–though, in this case, they were set up by federal informants.
Undercover officer Malik Mohamed (soon to need protective custody from his angry fellow co-religionists) testified that Shah, 19, expressed interest in taking part in jihad.
Oh, and by the way, the feds discovered Mr. Shah, when the FBI was investigating activity on property owned by the Islamic Society of Greater Houston in Willis, which is just north of Houston. He was Executive Secretary of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Texas-Dallas. Dallas’ CBS 11 found online messages left by Shah supporting the 9/11 attacks and praising Nazi Germany. (Watch the video.)
Check out his “motime” page.
From the Houston Chronicle:
After participating in firearms training staged by government informants last year at a campground north of Conroe, Shah was charged in a plot to fight for the terrorist organization overseas against U.S.-led forces. On secret recordings, he can be heard railing against the U.S. and quipping that his passport showed the face of a terrorist.
As a student-visa holder, the Pakistani, who attended the University of Texas at Dallas on a scholarship, was not allowed to have a firearm. . . .
Three Muslim students from Houston connected to the case remain in federal custody. Shiraz Syed Qazi, 26, was sentenced last week to 10 months in prison for unlawful possession of a firearm.
His cousin, Adnan Mirza, faces three firearms charges, in addition to a charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States by making donations to the Taliban. The 30-year-old Pakistani, who also was here on a student visa, is scheduled for trial in October.
Kobie Williams, 34, who pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge last year, is to be sentenced in October.
Question: Who paid for Shah’s scholarship? Was it Texas and American taxpayers? Very likely.
Shah faces up to 20 years in prison and will be sentenced Sept. 14th. Will he face tough Texas justice? Or liberal O.J.-style leniency?
Let’s hope he gets the max. And hope that immigration authorities deport him when he gets out, instead of freeing him back into the Great American Abyss.
Don’t forget, we can’t address the burgeoning illegal alien problem, until we get a handle on the student visa program and severely shrink it. There are many more Syed Maaz Shah’s whom we’ve lost track of and will never find, while they plot and train to kill Americans.
Unfortunately, under Bush and his friend, Saudi King Abdullah, the student visa program is only expanding.
